Create a CHRoot access to access your service by console

Create a CHRoot access to access your service by console

This type of access creates a user with root privileges (with some limitations) by console or SSH. With this CHRoot user you can carry out actions such as a manual migration directly in the service or manage the folders and directories on the web by console. One action you can carry out is, for example, unzip a .zip file from a website previously uploaded by FTP.
